Never (in this decade) has a sneaker caught the attention of non-sneaker media outlets like the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ did. The military-inspired colorway of the ‘Cannon’ was deemed newsworthy by sports blogs, fashion blogs, gossip blogs, and even the biggest names in those respective categories, like ESPN and CNN. LeBron James debuted the ‘Cannon’ LeBron 9 during that star-studded South Florida All-Star Classic that was held in late September, and since then we’ve all been patiently awaiting the wide release (these dropped first in limited numbers at select retailers in Miami). The release date for cannon was originally set at November 4th, but Nike has just confirmed a minor postponement of this special edition colorway to December 3rd. November is already a jam-packed month with big-name kicks, so perhaps this delay is a blessing in disguise. Now that you have the new date circled on your calendars, are these worth the wait? If your patience is thinning, grab a pair right now on 2xwashoes on eBay.
